Posted in: School volleyball coach arrested for assaulting student See in context

Usually, the job of coaching in these situations goes to one of the teachers with zero experience. This bully will get a big slap of karma I hope.

Posted in: Melbourne ends 5th COVID-19 lockdown See in context

This decision wouldn’t have anything to do with the massive anti-lockdown demo days ago in Melbourne, now would it?

What rubbish! Grow up. Melbourne has used these measures very successfully in the past and continues to. And those ‘freedom’ demos were hardly massive. Just a bunch of cranks who want to be Americans.

Posted in: Whither thou goest, 'terebi'? See in context

I stopped watching tv in Australia in the year 2000 when Big Brother started. That was the start of the death of tv as an entertainment outlet for me.

Looking at 5 minutes of tv here is like throwing your brain out the window, as was so eloquently put previously.

My theory is that it is used as a kind of ‘soma’ (remember that drug from Brave New World, that kept the Delta class dumb and submissive?). That’s what I think tv is.

No.

Posted in: COVID-19 cases in U.S. triple over 2 weeks amid misinformation See in context

The GOP death cult, headed by the Florida blogger, or Flogger, as well as the Faux, are the source of the misinformation. They are spearheading the deliberate spread of misinformation in order to hobble the current administration’s efforts so that come the next election, people will turn back to the GOP. Please try to prove me wrong, oh please, go on…

Of course their lies of ‘zero risk’ will come undone.

Of course they’ll find ways of getting their snouts into troughs. It’s only natural for them.

Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

and the biggest purveyors of misinformation, Faux News. Don’t think most of them aren’t secretly vaccinated, like Dump and his wife, and most of the Repugnants. Sad that the people with the least credibility (politicians) are left to front the fight against mis/disinformation.

Hey Suga, how about dealing with the lack of action in this country first before committing needed money and resources overseas?!?!

Posted in: Stop terrorism See in context

More fear posters as weapons of mass distraction. Olympics fever that never was has reduced to cold shoulder by the majority of citizens, states of emergency imposed due to government inability to properly deal with the pandemic, vaccine ‘rollout’ dismally inefficient. Have to stir up fear as a distraction. I had a lot of hope for Suga when he landed the job, but that quickly evaporated.

Posted in: Osaka’s remote-learning policy strains teachers; forces students to go to school for lunch See in context

The BoE here is the most inept, designed to fail, and worst informed organisation. I mean, “I’m fine, thank you. And you?” hasn’t been uttered for about 100 years, and then only by upper class British English speakers.

Anyway, this kind of twisted, illogical idiocy is typical of the Japanese BoE. Would not expect anything else from them.

This is looking more and more embarrassing when you scour the news from other countries.

Can’t wait to be Suga-free.

Posted in: GOP purges Cheney for 'unity,' but Trump bent on retribution See in context

But former President Donald Trump, who celebrated Cheney's ouster by calling her a “bitter, horrible human being,”

I hope she treated this comment like the pathetic joke he is, by claiming it as a compliment coming from him. That this evil clown is still running the GOP says more about republicans than about him really.

Conflicted eh? There’s a little finger hold people! A little public pushback against Toyota, and they will be running to pull out their sponsorship!
